At the European Congress of Radiology (ECR) conference of 2022 we not only showed an updated version of the Azurion simulation we made for the RSNA of 2021 but we also added a second simulation based on the same principles. These simulations are not only very successful they also significantly reduce the cost of attending these conferences as it is no longer necessary to ship and install actual systems.
A quick update on the progress of the CAVE. A permanent CAVE has now been created at the Philips Experience Lab.
For the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) conference of 2021 we created a simulation of the new integrated multi-modality viewing and control Azurion systems which automatically integrates the imaging data from multiple sources. The “control room” uses the actual control devices and the “examination room” is simulated on a large LED-screen allowing the user to experience a number of clinical scenarios.
Created a POC (proof of concept) of a VR CAVE using UNICave, Unity, a collection of projectors and PCs. The CAVE consisted of 3 walls and a ceiling using a VIVE controller to allow interaction with the VR environment. POC was successful. A dedicated set of projectors an PCs is now on order. Will be continued in 2021 as there’s also some construction work that will need to be done in order to give the CAVE a permanent place in the building.
